In 1950s Paris, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were friends, the rising stars of the fashion world. But by the late sixties the city was invaded by a new mood of liberation and hedonism, and dominated by intrigue, infidelities, addiction and parties. Each designer created his own mesmerising world, so vivid and seductive that people were drawn to the power, charisma and fame, and it was to make them bitter rivals. The Beautiful Fall is a dazzling exposé of an era and the story of the two men who were its essence and who remain its most singular survivors.

Furniture & interiors of the 1970s

The design of the 1970s was distinguished by a strong confluence of creativity and functionalism in furnishing and decor. We already recognize many '70s furniture designs as icons of mid-century modernism-and the proof is the prices they command at fine furniture auctions today.Bony examines the works of international designers whose creations exemplify this period, from the ergonomically-focused designers working in America to the pure design movement in Scandinavia and design innovators in Italy led by Archizoom, Alchymia, and Gaetano Pesce. This indispensable reference book chronicles the period's interior design trends with over 200 photographs focusing on artistic and decorative innovations that created the first intelligent and informed design conversation between two continents.

" Je suis devenu ministre par surprise. C'est sans doute vrai puisque je l'ai entendu dire un peu partout. Enfin, j'ai essayé de faire de mon mieux et j'ai quand même tenu trois ans. Avec le recul, ce qui m'a plu aussi dans cette aventure c'est d'avoir osé sauter dans la cage aux lions de la politique et d'observer leur férocité, leurs grognements et leurs faiblesses. Ils sont beaux à observer, imprévisibles, tour à tour caressants et cruels. Ce fut à la fois dangereux, excitant et amusant car je n'étais pas dompteur de profession mais tout de même bien décidé à ne pas me faire manger. J'ai reçu pas mal de coups de griffes mais j'en suis sorti sain et sauf. J'ai retrouvé ma vie d'avant sans regrets ni amertume pendant qu'ils continuent à s'entredévorer, mais j'ai emporté une clef de la cage. Et comme j'aime bien partager, je la tiens à la disposition de ceux qui voudraient s'en servir pour tenter leur chance. À condition d'apprécier ce type de sport et d'apprendre à courir plus vite que les grands fauves, ça vaut vraiment le coup d'essayer. L'existence n'offre pas beaucoup de récréations de ce genre...
